A beautiful house with spectacular views

5 of 5
We received a very warm welcome on our arrival. This beautiful 5 star house offers every comfort. The views from the kitchen diner are truly mesmerizing and we spent most of our evenings watching the sun set over the ocean with a nice glass of wine. We all enjoyed our time in this beautiful area of Ireland and would love to come back again. Our top tip; bring a camera and have it to hand, as the weather changes at a moments notice and so do the views. This house is a real gem!

A gem on a superb location

5 of 5
Old Calla School House ( June 17th –June 24th 2017) When we entered Old Calla School House we did feel welcome straight away! The atmosphere, the smell, the flowers is the vase, the vieuw at the Atlantic and in the back on some of the Twelve Pins, everything was just right for a lovely week at the Connemara! And we did enjoy every minute of that week in this lovely house at this very special place. Our hosts left enough tourist information to keep us busy. Also enough peace in this fully equipped house (really nothing missing!) and the environment to sit outside just enjoying the view and the lovely garden. We do miss our every day walk to the beach ( only ten minutes). Great fun walking at low tide across the beach to the isle where only sheep are living. Almost every evening we made a real peat fire in the living room. You get used to this peculiar smell and that we also miss. One solution: we have to go back to Old Calla School House along the Wild Atlantic Way again!! Theo and Corinne
